If you have any info on this watch, please let me know. I cant find anything about the vintage or the watch. The watch has approx 2.75 carats of diamonds, and the case and band are iridium/platinum. There appears to be the initials JHF in the logo inside the case.

Thanks from a newbie!

Thanks for all of the info. The watch runs - so I did OK for $475.00! Anyone have any idea as to the era of the watch? FYI as you may be able to tell from the scans, the diamonds have a modern cut with the larger table, not the old miner's or European cut, so that may help date it?

1919, Marcel Tolkowsky created the "modern" round brilliant. Before that, standard diamond cuts date back to the 17th century (step cut). The deeper (miners cut) was well used into the mid 60's. I would not go on diamond cut for this one...:D

Would you mind if I posted your pics on our Facebook Collectors page at Marvin Watch Collectors | Facebook - I'm sure it would be helpful to many other folks. Thanks :)
